I wrote my residence for New Zeland because there wasn't Korea, which is where I live, on the list. I am an international student, and I have played ice-hockey here in Korea for the last 6 years. I've also played basketball for my entire life.
Sports have been an outlet for my stress, and it has absolutely been and will be a major part of my life.
I wish to continue sports in college and also to recieve a rich academic experience.
My skills obviously have not been tested at the college level and the fact that I played the sport in Korea makes it even harder to judge how well I will play in college in the U.S.
All I can say is that I was captain of my ice-hockey and basketball squads throughout high-school and that I never regretted playing the two sports.
Although I would love to play both sports in college, I wish to focus on my studies in college more than I did in High School and that is why I have narrowed my wishes to Ice-Hockey.
Now, you would ask then why ice hockey.
Ice Hockey has been a certain pride in my life, a pride I had when I went through the negative prejudices I was apportioned with when I returned to Korea after living in the States for five years.
As a sixth grader, I was ironically prejudiced my fellow Korean sixth graders from the moment I returned to Korea.
But icehoceky was an outlet for such prejudices because
on the ice, everybody was equal. My opponents couldn't beat me because I couldn't speak Korean as well as them .
Although, now as 6 years has passed, I live a typical life in terms of social relations with my peers, I still cherish ice-hockey because
that certain sport was always beside me no matter the circumstances.
